Welcome to the European Recorder Teachers Association

Welcome to ERTA UK. We are a dynamic organization that provides a forum for recorder teachers and all educational practitioners interested in the recorder to share best practice and their joy for music making and education. Through our annual events including conference and CPD training, we aim to promote and disseminate the highest standards of recorder teaching across the UK. Our membership includes those working with our youngest students, through to post conservatoire/university and lifelong learners. Whether you work in schools, colleges, conservatoires or private practices, we provide a space for you to share ideas and celebrate all things recorder. Send us an e-mail on this site for more information - we look forward to hearing all about you!
